Cider Crate Tasting Notes:

Smell: Mild aroma. Honey and apple notes. Sweet overall.
Initial Taste: Minimal bite from astringency. Strong pungent honey and sweet apples notes.
After Taste: Extra smooth, flavour lasts a pretty long time. More crisp, fresh apple flavours becomes present.  Some filmy notes to finish.
On ice: Less astringency and more smooth/less sharp.

Additional Notes:  The Legacy Cyser by Rosewood is very unique.  It has a strong kick from the honey and wine elements/astringency initially, but becomes extra smooth quickly into the aftertaste. It’s sweet but not sugary, with some creamy and crisp apple elements. It lingers a long-time and is a very unique offering compared to other wine/cider hybrids. This apple mead cyser is well worth a bottle as we cannot recall seeing anything like this elsewhere in Ontario.
